One of the true icons of the 90s has returned. Not only as a statement piece for your wardrobe but as a great defence for the wintry chills.
Yes, the puffer jacket is back, and can now be purchased in a huge range of colours and lengths. Labelled as this season’s portable duvet coat, the puffer has been seen on the catwalk of designers such as Stella McCartney and Balenciaga. These cosy coats are a perfect investment and are bound to be an important piece in every winter coat collection.
Puffer coats are versatile and surprisingly have the ability to be dressed up or down. For more casual days, pair with a skinny jean or slim leg trousers, a high neck jumper and finally finish with your choice or trainer or low-heeled shoe. For smarter occasions or an edgy look, go for a lingerie-style cami dress or a high-neck mini dress, complete with a simplistic ankle boot.
There are so many styles on the high street right now. For those who want to make a statement head to H&M for its stand out oversized velvet piece, or for a more subtle daytime look, Topshop’s long grey puffer jacket is ideal, it features MA-1 bomber jacket detailing making it trend approved. The River Island khaki puffer is a great everyday jacket, featuring a faux fur trim keeping you warm and looking stylish.
These jackets are a great alternative to the usual trench coats or parkas often seen when it starts to get cold. Instead of splashing out on designer Puffer coats, here are some affordable choices from the high street that look just as good.
